Mingalabar! (Myanmar hello).
Discourse is awesome and modern. It is the wordpress of discussion groups.
I created discourse server with the help of a friend on classicaltheravada.org.
I want to have it as a standalone site without a subdomain (which we did), but I want to have something similar to dhammawheel.com
In the dhammwheel website the header is more prominent, and it feels more like a page rather than a list of discussion threads.
I’d also like to have separated sections if possible.
I don’t want to maintain a webserver and a discourse server at the same time, especially since we are a $5 digitalocean droplet. However, is that possible on a 1gb server? I looked into LandingPage, but it seems to do too much for what I want.
I’d also be very happy if I can have a simple homepage, and then have a link to the discourse without a heavy web server or a subdomain and on single discourse server.
Yes… we are already running on the DO $5 option. Gosh golly gee… if we get more than 30 members to sign up… we can think about a 2gb server. Even so, probably no more than 5 logged in at a single instance.
This banner thing looks like it might do the trick.
At first look, themes looked like it only changed the color maps.
I will have to look into this.
That seems to be a theme component. It’s probably private and that is why you can’t find it. I am not a designer, but the icons look like regular images? you could make them from zero, or buy something similar online. And the outline circles could have been added through CSS.
